8 Indicators for Monitoring Educational Research 1. Project overview: Aims of MoBi Reception Indicators for Monitoring Educational Research Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research

9 Indicators for Monitoring Educational Research 1. Project overview: Focus of this talk Indicators for Monitoring Educational Research Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research

10 is a community platform for recording and searching in Social Sciences Research projekts ●Selection of relevant research projects from the SOFISwiki database ●Completed projects from 1995 to 2009 with at least one research institution located in Germany ●Approx research projects in Educational Research ●Monitoring prototype as an add-on to SOFISWiki 2. Monitoring Prototyp : Database sofis.gesis.org/sofiswiki Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research

11 2. Indicators ●Basis for assessment of scientific research ●Different levels of complexity ●Influence on validity: ○Characteristics of the object of investigation ○Type and scope of data ○Research approach Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research

12 2. Indicators: MoBi ●Existing data did not allow for construction of complex indicators ●In MoBi indicators are metadata that according to their respective character, describe different features of a field of research ●Indicators for which the implementation in the prototype is exemplified: ○Research activity ○Disciplinary area ○Type of funding ○Qualification Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research

13 2. Indicators (Projects and Publications)  Research activity  Collaboration  Internationalisation  Funding Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research

14 2. Research Activity: Assumptions Projects  Increase in share of projects over time 14 Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research

15 2. Research Activity: Findings Projects  Increased interest in educational research Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research

16 2. Activity in Core Disciplines: Assumptions Projects  Increase in the area of psychology Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research

17 2. Activity in Core Disciplines: Assumptions Projects  Decline in psychological projects Share of MoBi-projects in core disciplines over time Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research

18 2. Activity in Core Disciplines: Assumptions Publications  Higher share of journal articles in psychology  Higher share of monographs in educational sciences and sociology Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research

19 Publications  No higher share of journal articles in psychology  Higher share of monographs in educational sciences and sociology 2. Activity in Core Disciplines: Findings Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research

20 Publications  Share of journal articles in psychology is not significantly higher than in other disciplines  Over time increase of journal articles in Educational Sciences and in psychology 2. Activity in Core Disciplines: Findings Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research Share of journal articles in core disciplines over time

21 3.1 Database and Technical Background: SOFISwiki is an extension to Mediawiki that enables quick semantic search and discovery of data in a Wiki system SOFISwiki is based on Semantic Mediawiki technology: Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research https://semantic-mediawiki.org/

22 3.1 Database and Technical Background : SOFISwiki User View Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research

23 3.1 Database and Technical Background : SOFISwiki Developer View Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research

24 3.1 Database and Technical Background: Concept of Functionalities Semantic result formats: ●JqPlot ●Sparkline ●Tag cloud ●D3 ●... ●Determine project status ●Determine geographical area ●Determine default time period or a time slice ●Choose indicator:  Research activity  Disciplinary area  Type of funding  Qualification (Germany) (completed projects) Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research

25 Research activity Number of achieved projects per year in the period from 1995 to 2009 Visualisation JqPlot Extension 3.2 Visualisation of Indicators Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research The project scope was highest in 2006

26 3.2 Visualisation of Indicators Disciplinary area Relates projects to one of 12 disciplines or research fields based on the Social Sciences classification: Sociology, Population Science, Political Science, Education, Psychology, Communication Sciences, Economics etc. Visualisation Tag cloud Extension (above: wordcloud, below: sphere widget) from 1995 to 2009 “Education” is the most frequent discipline Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research

27 Type of funding Distinguishes between: ●In-house projects ●Third-party funded reasearch ●Contract research Visualisation 1 D3: bubble chart and treemap JqPlot: pie and donut 3.2 Visualisation of Indicators Third-party funding is the most common funding type in educational research Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research

28 Type of funding Distinguishes between: ●In-house projects ●Third-party funded reasearch ●Contract research Visualisation 2 Jqplot series 3.2 Visualisation of Indicators strong increase in third-party funded research and decrease in other funding types over time Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research

29 Qualification Distinguishes between doctoral and habilitation theses over time Visualisation JqPlot series Extension Strong increase of “doctoral theses” and standing of “ habilitation theses” 3.2 Visualisation of Indicators

30 4. Summary and Prospect ●Semantic MediaWiki is a good starting point for visualising information ●Alignment and expansion is necessary Challenges ●Development of models to visualise significant deviations ●Visualisation of indicators with more than one value ●Expansion of functionalities and integration of additional indicators Zadar, I Marc Rittberger I LIDA 2014 I Assessing Educational Research
